All aboard the U.S.S. Salem! That was the theme of the bash of all soap bashes, the 50th anniversary party of Days of our Lives.  The event was held in Hollywood this past Saturday night (November 7th) at the Hollywood Palladium on the eve of the long-running NBC daytime drama’s golden anniversary on Sunday. DAYS premiered back on November 8th, 1965.

Over 100 cast members past and presented were part of the night’s festivities which started with the red carpet arrivals, followed by cocktails and dinner, and then members of the cast and executive producer Ken Corday (playing the drums) rocking the house with musical performances as the night continued. Corday also made a speech as the all the attendees shared in a toast to Days of our Lives, the legacy of the series, and to being an elite member of the extended family they were all a part of.

Great photos and love the pics of the 2 Chad’s, 2 Ciara’s, and 2 Austin’s. Where were the 2 Billie’s and the 2 Theo’s?

Looks like an awesome night. But, you left out Gloria Loring. Her photo is included, but you didn’t mention her in either list of names. 🙁
Clearly, she is my favorite! 😉

Oh man they really brought back the stars from past and present didn’t they???? It must have been so cool to have been there!

I’m glad Eileen Davidson showed up, and damn she looks better than ever there!!! Kristen is so missed!

I’m glad that stars like Alison Sweeney, Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith were there also.

And can we get Carrie played by Christie Clark back on the show? Austin Peck can return as Austin also.

It’s great to see the actors we haven’t seen in decades. I started watching the show when Gregg Marx was on. But there needs to be a correction in your pictures. Philece Sampler didn’t play Lee Dumonde. She was Renee Dumonde, her daughter. Brenda Benet who played Lee, was written off when she passed on.

Great Pictures. Looks like the guy who plays Adam on Y & R only shook twice. I hate when that happens just before a picture. Bring Jamie Lynn Bauer back DAYS.

Would have been nice to see cameos for their 50th. Surprised we didnt get flashbacks.

John de Lancie (Eugene) was at the party.

As for flashbacks on DAYS…It’s not too late…Flashbacks will hit us when the darkness turns to light.

The scene where the original actress who played Julie in the first episode where she is shown shoplifting (which can be seen on utube)shouldv’e been used when Julie is talking to Ciara about her own shoplifting experience…like i said in another post Susan Seaforth could’ve said as an inside joke how different she looked back then…i would’ve loved that…and since Days is one of few soaps that avoided the wiping process and saved their episodes, there is so many flashbacks from each decade since the 60s that shouldv’e been shown in true celebration of the shows 50th…and as good as the writing has improved, it does not feel like much of a 50 year salute imho!

Patrick, I HOPE that DAYS is smart enough to re-invent Eve; allow her time to mend away from Salem and BRING KASSIE BACK in late 2016. We ought to start a Petition to Bring Back Kassie. How?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

In the latest promo for DAYS, look for Sonny to also lower the boom on Maggie with another deserved outburst and a homecoming for Will and Sonny.

So, what did you think of the scenes between Freddie and Camila? What do you hope happens to Maggie after her remembrance of the night of the crash is revealed? What will Xander (Paul Telfer) and Victor (John Aniston) to next and all of their plans seem to be unraveling? Comment below.  But first check out the scene from Friday between Camila and Freddie, and this week’s promo for DAYS>

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
